Stampin’ Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden

I used the Sale-A-Bration So Very Much and Avant Garden stamp sets to create my card to share with you today.  I cannot believe we have only one week left for Sale-A-Bration, wow, the time has flown!  Many of the Free items have already sold out, make sure to check below.  Remember for every  $50 you spend, you get one free gift.  Don’t wait!

 

Stampin' Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden by Cardiology by Jari

This is a really quick and simple card to create.  First, I snailed a panel of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP to my Peekaboo Peach card stock base.  Then, I stamped Thank You in Early Expresso ink onto a Very Vanilla card stock panel.  I knew I wanted the flowers from Avant Garden to have depth, so I created a mask first.  That was done by stamping one flower onto a sticky note near the sticky end, and cutting it out with my Paper Snips.  Then I was ready to begin stamping on the Very Vanilla panel.  

Stampin' Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden Cardiology by Jari

 

I stamped the So Saffron flower on the right side first, then covered it with the mask I had created.  I  cleaned my stamp and stamped the lower and upper flowers in Peekaboo Peach ink, making sure my mask was still where I originally placed it.  The opposite side was done in the same fashion with my sticky note mask.  All of the flower centers were stamped in Early Expresso ink.  The smaller sentiment was also stamped in Early Expresso onto a strip of So Saffron and die cut with a banner die.

A small length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was notched at either end and bunched up with some Linen Thread to embellish the top, with some Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes added to the opposite side.  The art panel was framed with Peekaboo Peach and then popped onto the base with Dimensionals.  

For the inside of the card, I added more of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP from the front to my Very Vanilla panel and left room to write a note.   Don’t let So Very Much and Avant Garden get away before you get your hands on them! 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts to re-create this card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle to create a Happy Spring card to share with you today!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari

 

This week, we have a color challenge with Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy and Crumb Cake.  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Color Challenge

I started with a panel of Festive Birthday DSP that I adhered to a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I cut out two Stitched Shapes Squares, one in Crushed Curry and one in the same Festive Birthday DSP.  I dry fit them onto a panel of Whisper White so that I would know how much room I had for the rest of the pieces I had planned to add.

Next, I stamped the grass image from Basket Bunch in Emerald Envy onto a panel of Whisper White.  Happy Spring was then stamped in the upper right hand corner, also in Emerald Envy.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the words up because they are single stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring Card by Cardiology by Jari

 

My flowers, leaves, and bunnies were stamped next.  Then, I pulled out the Basket Builder Framelits Dies and cut them, the tall grass, and a basket out.  My Whisper White art panel was then adhered to a panel of Emerald Envy. I added the squares with liquid glue and adhered the tall grass to them with more glue.  Two of the flowers were colored a little with a blender pen and some Crushed Curry ink. The basket and white bunny were attached with Dimensionals, while the Crumb Cake bunnies were adhered with liquid glue. 

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari

 

One of the Lace Doilies was adhered to the Festive Birthday DSP panel with liquid glue, then the art panel popped on with Dimensionals.  A small bow was attached to the basket handle with a glue dot, and some Enamel Shapes added to the flower centers.  The inside has a plain Whisper White panel with a little strip of the matching DSP attached to the bottom.  And there you have it, a Happy Spring card. I hope you are experiencing a little spring like weather wherever you are!  

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! Supplies used in creating my card as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Happy Birthday

I used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper, Balloon Adventures, and the Stylized Birthday stamps to create the card I’m sharing with you today.  I also threw in some Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper, and hope you were able to snag it while it was still available for Sale-A-Bration.  But, if you did not get it, Bermuda Bay card stock will be perfectly fine to use in its place.  

 

Stampin' Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Birthday by Cardiology by Jari

 

I’m also playing along with the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #91, hope you’ll check it out!

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #91

 

I started with a panel of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and adhered it to a panel of So Saffron card stock.  Next, I cut another strip from Cupcakes & Carousels and adhered it to some Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.  This whole strip was then adhered to the first panel. I cut a Lace Doily in half and centered it so that it would peek out under the sentiment panel and glued it down with some Liquid Glue.  

 

Stampin' UP! Cupcakes & Carousels Birthday by Cardiology by Jari

 

My next step was to stamp the confetti image from Balloon Adventures onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I did not stamp it full strength, though, it was stamped off once each time before I added it to the Very Vanilla.  Then, I stamped the Stylized Birthday Happy Birthday stamp in Bermuda Bay right over the confetti.  The sentiment panel was cut out with a Layering Squares Framelit and framed with a little larger scalloped Square in the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.  

 

Stampin' Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Birthday by Cardiology by Jari

Next, I wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine around my large panel, added a short piece of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and tied a bow.  This panel was popped onto the Bermuda Bay card stock base with Dimensionals. Finally, I added one Rhinestone on top of the letter i, added some Dimensionals and popped the sentiment panel onto the front, too.  

Stampin' Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Birthday Cardiology by Jari

The inside of my card was stamped with the Balloon Adventures stamp set in Bermuda Bay on my Very Vanilla card stock.  A thin strip of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP from the front was added to the bottom.  Quick and easy for the middle of the week!  Hope you like it!  

A complete list of supplies including card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Better Together For a Friend

I used the Stampin’ Up! Better Together stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to create the card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

 

The inspiration for my design is from the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #235  challenge this week:

I started by adhering a panel of Playful Palette to a panel of Very Vanilla, then adhered them to a panel of Wild Wasabi. Next, I added some Tear & Tape Adhesive to a length of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and carefully lined it up right at the point the Playful Palette strip met the Very Vanilla panel.  I made sure the ribbon was a little longer than my art panel so that I could also secure it to the back.

I pulled out my Swirly Scribbles Thinlets dies and cut two Wild Wasabi “wreaths”.  They were not lined up exactly perfectly to create a little fuller looking wreath, dotted very carefully with Liquid Glue and set aside to dry.  Next, I stamped 3 of the rose images from Better Together in Flirty Flamingo onto a scrap of Pink Pirouette card stock and carefully cut them out with my Paper Snips.  But the leaves are green…..

Yes, so I stamped three more of the rose images ,this time in Wild Wasabi onto a scrap of Wild Wasabi card stock. Then, I carefully cut them out again with Paper Snips and decided to outline them a little more with my Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Marker.  I lined them up with my pink roses and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere them.

The sentiment banner came next.  It was stamped in Versa Mark onto a strip of Blushing Bride, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I snipped a little off the end with my Banner Triple Punch and added it and the strip of Fabulous Foil DSP to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.  My roses were attached to the wreath with some Liquid Glue and some Dimensionals.  Then, the wreath was attached to the front with a lot of small pieces of Dimensionals.  This whole panel was then popped onto the Blushing Bride base and 3 Metallic Enamel Dots finished it off.

More Gold Embossing Powder was added to the inside sentiment, also from Better Together, and a single rose was added to the bottom corner.  This time, I used the ink to rubber method on the rose, using my Wild Wasabi and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers to color on the stamp.  And, I even decorated my envelope…

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Thank You

Today I am sharing the Basket Bunch Bundle from Stampin’ Up!  I just received this bundle last Sunday from my up-line, Amy, and have been dying to try it out.  Have I told you how much I love our quarterly team meetings?  We get together for lunch, have a business meeting, make projects and then receive prizes!  Woo-hoo!  I’d really love to have you on my team, you’d love it, too!  Make sure you get in touch with me if you are interested.

I made a Basket Bunch Thank You card on a Whisper White Note Card.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Bundle Thank You by Cardiology by Jari

 

I started with a Crumb Cake panel that I dry embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then snailed it to a panel of Wild Wasabi card stock.  Next, I adhered a panel of the Carried Away DSP (free while supplies last during Sale-A-Bration) to a panel of Peekaboo Peach card stock.  Using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies, I cut out two bunches of grass in Wild Wasabi and attached it to the Peekaboo Peach panel.  A length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was adhered to the bottom and the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Next, I stamped the rabbit and carrot images from Basket Bunch in Memento Black ink.  This ink does not stain the photopolymer stamps as much as other inks do.  I used a Blender Pen and carefully colored in the rabbit with Crumb Cake ink, making sure not to get it too wet.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the rest of the images.and then cut them all out with the dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The banners were cut with the die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Bundle Thank You by Cardiology by Jari

 

For the inside of my card, I stamped the grass in Wild Wasabi along the bottom of a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the rabbit and the carrot in Memento Black ink and colored them in with Stampin’ Write Markers.  The sentiment was stamped in Peekaboo Peach.  So, how do you like it?  I know if you haven’t added the Basket Bunch Bundle to your stash, you really must consider it.  You’ll be seeing me post more with this set!
